No Monday post because I was moving into London (yay!)
In a recent post, I had mentioned my girlfriend and I went to York for a few days and went to a lovely restaurant named Nineteen.
We stumbled across Nineteen, when we were walking around and exploring the area. From the outside it looked nice so we decided to check it out on google and if it looked decent, we would go. It passed the first barrier of google and the second barrier of having a table free so we ate at nineteen.
Sorry for terrible photos – New mobile is needed
The food my girlfriend had was
Starter – Duck Tartare with balsamic sorbet, game chips (Amazing)
Starter – Scallops with pork cheek, beetroot, jus (Amazing)
Overall it was fantastic, best food of the mini holiday and I would recommend anyone to go
Price for 3 courses each and a bottle of wine – £100.
If you are in York and want to splash out a bit – GO, GO, GO! – Go now! Fantastic food, and the service was friendly and brilliant.
Right, Japanese food – interesting change! Daring recipe. It could have gone one way or the other – lovely or disgusting. As I am putting it on FADHopper – you know which one won!
